Careers Offer at The Oaks Specialists College

Careers and employability skills are embedded into the College curriculum. As part of the careers programme we are able to provide high quality careers information, advice and guidance. We support our learners to access work placements to develop their skills and confidence within a working environment. On site we are very fortunate to have opportunities for learners to participate in enterprise projects which provides them with the understanding of how businesses operate.

The Oaks careers programme has 10 different sections that all come together as part of the careers offer to all PfA levels. It follows guidance from “The 8 Gatsby Benchmarks” .
